Sexual assault charges against ‘swinging’ reality TV doctor and girlfriend tossed after years of back-and-forth political drama between dueling DAs about ‘manufactured’ case

In an unscripted and ignominious end for all parties involved, a long-running, rape-focused criminal prosecution in Southern California was settled with a plea deal on relatively minor gun and drug charges.

On Wednesday, in an Orange County courtroom, Dr. Grant Robicheaux, 43, accepted legal culpability on one felony count of possession of an assault weapon, a Bushmaster rifle, and one misdemeanor count of possession of a controlled substance, psilocybin — the psychedelic substance found in several species of so-called “magic” mushrooms.

The charges against the infamous and now-former Newport Beach-based hand surgeon are a distant whimper from the original — highly scandalous, violent, and salacious — allegations filed in the case. And the defendant will likely never serve a day in prison.

The state, defense, and court agreed that Robicheaux should be sentenced to three years of probation under the terms of the plea deal — along with drug education classes and community service. After a while, the felony charge can be reduced to a misdemeanor and both charges will eventually be eligible for expungement.
